How to Biden-proof your business (and life)

Welcome to Biden’s America! 😉

Don’t worry… I’m not gonna go full Trumpian on you. In actuality, I couldn’t care less about who’s president. I barely even live in the U.S. anymore, so it doesn’t affect me much. (I know… I’m so privileged. But, in my case, it’s a privilege I created.)

But, there’s that window.

That first six months.

They all blather on during their campaigns, making promises and somesuch… how they’re gonna “save democracy” and “fix healthcare” and “unity” and whatever nonsense it happens to be.

But, that first six months…

That where you really see.

That’s what I used to pay attention to.

So, there’s a little tip for you if you’re unsure what this new Prez is going to do. Sit tight. Wait. And see what happens in the first six months. That’ll tell the tale.

But, this email is really about not even caring about that.

A few years back, I came across this thing called “agorism”. There’s a whole philosophy behind it, but the main thing for me was to “disconnect from the system as much as possible”.

I have and do…

And, my life has never been better.

My wife and I sold our lavish 2,000 square-foot home in Omaha and moved to the Ozarks in Missouri. We built a modest cabin in the woods that we paid cash for. We sold our second car that we didn’t really need.

And, we drastically reduced our monthly “overhead”.

And, have been focused on aggressive debt-reduction.

Which we’re very close to having all paid off.

I don’t have a mortgage. I pay an electric bill, the payment on our new truck and the last little bit of some student loans. Food and all that… but most everything else is “optional”. Netflix, Disney+… junk like that.

The pandemic hit… and we barely felt it.

The recession from the pandemic hit and we barely felt it.

A client of mine had to reduce my workload for a couple months…

It was a pretty big pay cut… and we barely felt it. So yeah… I’m not worried about what some blowhard in D.C. plans to do.

Anyway, here’s some tips if you’re into this kind of thing:

Run as far away from big cities as you can

Do you really need that 2,000 sqft home?

Radically eliminate debt. It’s your #1 focus if you have it.

Building a house isn’t as hard as you think. I did it with YouTube.

Invest… especially if you’re broke. Make your money make money.

Get a little cryptocurrency. Just in case the dollar tanks.

Those are a few things. There’s probably a bunch more I could come up with if I thought about it for a minute. But, the point is… you don’t have to be beholden or so concerned about what’s happening politically.

IF you’re willing to do things differently than everyone else.

For me, I’d never go back.

That nonsense is for the BIRDS!

In any case, take all that for what it’s worth. Let me take off my tin foil hat and don my businessman’s cape, now.

So look…

One of the biggest opportunities out there right now to make wild profits is Upwork. 2.7 million in new projects posted to the site everyday! Imagine if you could get even a small fraction of that coming your way.

You can.

That’s what I show you how to do in my R2 Protocol course. A unique method for ethically exploiting the flaw in Upwork’s algorithm I discovered awhile back. It’s one of the simplest ways to get your freelance career off the ground.

I started this 3 days ago, following John’s suggestions, and I gained the Upwork Rising Talent badge in less than 2 days. I have a call with my first potential client tomorrow. Thanks, John!

John is the man! I followed his steps and I am flooded with interviews in a week. I got into two Talent clouds. The very next day, I got an invitation from the talent specialists from Upwork and a lot more. I wanna shout out, he is the best in this. Thanks John for helping me out!

After viewing John’s course, I made an Upwork account and it got approved the same day. Amazingly, I got my first job the very same day, I couldn’t believe it, I thought maybe I got it by coincidence. Anyways I completed the job and received my first earnings. Then, after two days, I got another job and within a week I got 3 jobs and completed them successfully. All the things he says seem to be minute but have a very great impact on your freelancing career.

I’ve been in an existential crisis for the last week about what the heck I’m doing as a business owner. Even though I’ve been a business for about a year, I’m constantly trying to think of how to prune and refine services. This was very personable and enjoyable to watch. Usually, business courses like this are dry and hard to get through…. repeating the same things over and over again. This was a breath of fresh air. THANK YOU.

I’ve definitely learnt so much in 2.5 hours than I’d learn watching different videos online on Youtube and reading tons of articles on the web. John has a natural way of teaching, where he is passionately diving in the topics and he makes it very easy to grasp — someone who wants you to really start running your business well by learning about the right tools and implement them in your online business. I will definitely share with many of the people I know who have been struggling for so long, I did find my answers and I’m sure will do too.

I have been following John Morris for several years now. His instruction ranges from beginner to advanced, to CEO-level guidance. I have referred friends and clients to John, and have encouraged my own daughter to pay attention to what he says. All of his teachings create wealth for me (and happiness for my clients!) I can’t speak highly enough about John, his name is well known in my home.

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

John has been the most important person in my freelance career ever since I started. Without him, I would have taken 10 or 20 years more to reach the position I am at now (Level 2 seller on Fiverr and Top Rated on Upwork).
